Bykernen in Rødovre will provide livable urban areas and green spaces in the center of Rødovre – few minutes from Copenhagen. The vision is to transform the center of Rødovre into new urban neighbourhoods. 

Situated at the edge of Copenhagen Bykernen is an area with a great potential for urban development. The area has the potential to transform into an urban district with a mix of dwellings, restaurants and cafés, different public and private facilities, cultural activities, shopping facilities and offices. 

The central administration in Rødovre “Rødovre Rådhus”, the shoppingcenter “Rødovre Centrum”, the main library and the community centre “Viften” are all current facilities situated in the center of Bykernen. New facilities will be connected to the existing facilities with a main pedestrian street “Hovedstrøget” that runs through the entire area. 

Green spaces are planned as recreational courtyards, front lawns, parklands, urban squares and roof terraces. The pathways will appear as avenues with trees and green areas to stay and play.

Six different neighbourhoods in Bykernen, varying in density and urban facilities,  provide different possibilities for urban development:

  • Karrébyen - an area with a high density and provides a wide range of facilities
  • Parkbyen -  a new residential area with large green parklands and a lower density than Karrébyen
  • Sibeliusparken - an existing well-functioning residential area that acts as a link between Karrébyen and Parkbyen
  • Kulturmidten - the center of Bykernen with the central administration, the main library and the community center Viften
  • Rødovre Centrum - a large shopping mall offering the largest concentration of shops in the municipality
  • Højnæsvej - Højnæsvej will primarily be an area of housing
